Kava Colada Kava Cocktail Recipe

Kava Colada Recipe

This alcohol-free twist on a piña colada is a playful, tasty way to mask kava’s earthiness. Makes 2 to 3 servings.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice (enough to make 6 pineapple ice cubes)
  • 4 Tbsp. Medium grind kava kava powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1oz coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 6 ice cubes (made from water)
  • 1/2 tsp. Single Origin Roasted Cacao Powder
  • 2-3 organic orange wedges

Directions

  1. Freeze pineapple juice in an ice cube tray. A 3/4 cup of juice should make 6 ice cubes, enough for this recipe. Or fill an ice cube tray with 2 cups juice to have leftover pineapple ice cubes for another time.
  2. Combine kava kava powder, coconut milk, coconut cream and orange juice in a blender.
  3. Blend for 4 minutes and strain out kava pulp with a nut bag
  4. Add 6 pineapple ice cubes to the blender and 6 ice cubes made from water. Pulse blend to crush the ice. Do not fully blend to avoid melting the ice.
  5. Pour in a festive glass. Sprinkle with cacao powder and garnish with an orange wedge.

Note: You can make a non-caffeinated chai tea and freeze those into cubes in place of the water ice cubes for a bit more spice and flavor.

My favorite kava so far

I've been a kava drinker for a decade & daily drinker for the past 3 years. I've tried most strains of the big vendors & have a few favorites.
This is my favorite kava. I went through a pound in record time & made a second, recurring order.

A truly special kava.

I have made kava from many different vendors, different islands, different cultivars. This is hands down one of the more potent and effective kavas, and it has a very smooth and approachable taste which makes it perfect for the Karuna Kava style of brewing.

Dokobana is our favorite!!

We absolutely love the Dokobana waka. It’s so smooth. The feeling is so wonderful after a couple cups. Makes us all happy. I have family get togethers and we all enjoy it. This is our go to blend.

My Order...

I'd love to rate your product. I'd love to try your product. Unfortunately it hasn't arrived yet. It's been at the USPS facility in Florida for 9 days with no delivery date. I'm not mad at y'all, but I'm pissed at USPS. If/when it arrives send me another email and I'll rate it. My first order was amazing, but I dont recall the name and I'm not at home to check. Anyways if it ever gets here I'll give some feedback...

Hey Andrew,
Well this stinks when it happens. I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. It's irritating on our end as well because it doesn't give u a good experience when you just want your kava. Thank you also for realizing that this is a USPS issue and not something we have control over.

That said, we do try to go above and beyond when this stuff does happen.

I have USPS hold music on the phone right now.

I'll file and incident report. If u do this as well its more likely to get someone to look faster for the package. They usually find it pretty quickly if it's outside the business 5 day window because they don't want to file the claim.

If they don't find it within 15 days, you or we can file a claim. That's up to you just let me know. If we file the claim, once the pmt is pending we'll resend the package. If you do it you can reorder anytime and receive the refund yourself for the entire product value plus shipping, not just the shipping.

It's pretty easy and if u need a point in the direction or any help just let me know.

In the mean time I'll chat with USPS to get this rolling. Good news is, they have always found the shipment when this happens.

Thank you for being a great customer.

Temo (solomon islands)

Just tried the temo for the first time.

It's so similar to the temo from BulaKavahouse that I suspect its from the same supplier. It's Fantastic!

Ground root has a very subtle purple hue, texture is pretty fine and powder kind of clumps together a bit.

It brews a pale brown color, lighter than most kava's I've had, and is noticeably very sticky/resinous, leaves a kind of coat on my hands after kneading, and it seems like that's a good sign.

Potency is great, only needed one bowl to really get going with a nice balanced effect, leaning heady.

Started with a great heady euphoria about 20 minutes in, accompanied by a nice light body buzz and no stimulation or anxiety.

Pretty much exactly how I remember Bula's Temo and it's been one of my favorite varieties in recent memory. It's a very good blender, I tried the Kelai recently from ArtofKava and was very impressed, and it's left me thinking that I bet the two of them together would be amazing.

taste isn't too bad, not really spicy or earthy, kind of mild taste. I usually add a little almond milk and it tastes very tolerable, unlike some other kava.

Highly recommend this one, you won't be disappointed!
